Dear Lord Colwyn,

In a recent speech you spoke these words -  "I once again urge the Government to consider the overwhelming worldwide scientific evidence which clearly points to fluoridation being a safe and effective way to fight caries and narrow the significant inequalities in children's oral health

You ask that the "worldwide evidence" be considered.  I would very much like to see some sample of this "worldwide evidence" and would be grateful if you could identify it.

Please note that I have no interest in people's "opinions", no matter how rofessional or scientific they claim to be.  I am only interested in the evidence.

From my own researches, which have been extensive over many year, I would suggest that fluoride in toothpaste (giving a topical application) works - probably more because fluoride is a poison and will attack tooth bacteria (the direct cause of cavities). This effect is seen in countries all around the world where dental health has improved steadily - quite regardless of water fluoridation. The fluoridation chemical remains a poison though. There have been numerous scientific studies that are
increasingly alarming as to the effect on various body organs and functions, thereby questioning your "overwhelming worldwide scientific evidence" view that fluoride is safe - or indeed that it's systemic use in fluoridated water supplies is even "effective".

I would welcome sight of your evidence. I would also ask that you reconsider your own views as to whether that evidence is proper scientific evidence or whether it is either based on unscientific principle or even (as I mostly find) just some suspect observational methodology supporting opinions of people who support fluoridation.

Thank you

Yours sincerely,

Cllr Chris Cooke
